Presentation

I am an American and my wife is Danish.  I studied at four American universities, earning a B.A. and an M.A. in romance languages.  My wife and I lived and studied 5 years in Paris before coming to Denmark.  Before teaching at CBS, I worked as a consultant with some 30 multinational companies.  I have also worked for a number of years as a translator and an interpreter – consecutive and simultaneous – (English-French-Danish) – in multinationals and a number of Danish ministries,­.  I am also currently employed in a Gymnasium, where I have been teaching English, French and Computer Science.  One of my main interests is language in its multiple forms, from semantics and pragmatics to multicultural communication.

Courses

In CBS, I have taught a number of undergraduate and graduate courses, such as “Professional Oral Communication”, “Multicultural Communication” and “Oral Interaction”.

Supervision

This semester, I am supervising a number of M.A. theses. 

My areas of special interest are Branding, Crisis Communication, CSR, Marketing Across Cultures,

Reputation Management, Organisational Structure, Rhetorical Discourse, and Intercultural Communication.
